Measles outbreak in New Zealand

Latin America

There is currently an outbreak of measles in New Zealand. The outbreak is pre-dominantly in the Auckland region.


The New Zealand Government has introduced a new travel requirement for some transit passengers.  It’s called the NZeTA (New Zealand Electronic Travel Authority) and travellers need to request theirs via the official mobile app or website.

Colombian and Ecuadorian passport holders transiting through New Zealand on their way to another country need an NZeTA before they board their plane.

Approval can take up to 72 hours, so get it before you go on the official government website: Immigration New Zealand - NZeTA (external link) or mobile app (search for NZeTA on your phone).

Colombian and Ecuadorean passport holders travelling to New Zealand will need a visa – please consult the following website for information on this process: Immigration New Zealand - Visa options (external link).
